Will this CPU work on this mobo?

Will this processor work with this mobo? I currently have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 (5200+) 2.7ghz. So im looking too upgrade.. would it be worth buying this processor? or should I upgrade my mobo first.. or would this CPU even work for me?

    wait now that I look at the CPU support on that mobo page.. im pretty sure it doesnt support that CPU speed.. not sure though, would like some help thanks :)
  2. or wait, maybe it does.. ughh im confused lol, sorry for the multiple posts.
  3. okay.. the only reason i cant buy a processor at this time is cause im upgrading my PSU and GPU right now, and dont really have enough left to get both a mobo and a PSU.. im currently on a onboard 8100.. how much do you think a HD 5770 would bottleneck with my CPU? like i said i plan on upgrading my CPU soon, so i wouldnt be dealing with the bottleneck for long.. would stuff still be playable? im running on a low resolution, so i wouldnt be running it in a high res.. gonna be in 1024*768.. (i am upgrading my monitor soon as well) just kinda curious to how much a bottleneck will happen if I get that card with my CPU (AMD athlon 64 X2 2.7ghz (5200+)

    I was told that even though it may bottleneck, its gonna be WAY better then my onboard 8100 i have atm
  4. im gonna be buying this PSU

    and, this is my case.. i have a basic mid ATX case
    http://computer-citi.com/zencart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=8&products_id=89

    would it fit?
    i was possible thinking about buying a new case.. but idk if it can fit in there.. im told it can fit in most mid towers..
  5. sure, i was looking at this one as well
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044

    so do you think ill have a problem fitting the card in that case? i currently have no PCI slots takin up, this card will be the only one.
  6. I like my modular PSU. They're worth the price premium if you care at all about cable management....
  7. okay.. now do you guys have any idea about the card fitting in my case? im not sure if i should be worried about it or not. the link of my case is above somewhere.. its just a basic mid ATX tower
  8. thank you for all your help :)
